I'm curious, where did you get these carb numbers from? A few are not close to what I typically see. For example, the numbers for the whole wheat and multi-grain breads are on the low side for what I typically find in the supermarket. Many of these "healthy" breads have surprisingly high carb counts.

I was also rather surprised to find that potatoes, sweet potatoes, and yams were not on the above list.

Msmofet, I detest most whole wheat pasta. But, I have found Italian whole grain, wheat pasta in an Italian grocery store and at the health food store. I have tried three or four different brands and they are all really good.

I also make whole grain, wheat pasta when I am feeling energetic. It comes out yummy too. So, if you have some hard, whole grain, wheat flour that tastes good in other stuff, it should work well for pasta.

I find that whole grain wheat tastes much better than "whole wheat".

It's all about the Glycemic Index. There is tons of great information out there! All carbs are not created equal.

My biggest problem is knowing what to have for breakfast. I tend to eat Wheaties, which usually send my sugar up. Does anyone know of anything that is quick and easy to make for breakfast that is diabetes friendly? I'm type 2.

The best breakfast I have had that handles spikes in blood sugar is to have yogurt with your cereal stirred in. You need that protein from the yogurt to steady your sugars.

4 ounces of yogurt with 1/2 cup of sugarless cereal...

Whole oatmeal with almond slices is good. Turkey bacon cooks quickly in the micro
